Artist Spotlight - Lorna Jameson


Using an array of beautiful colours , Lorna Jameson illustrates amazing imagery based around the natural world.

Lorna Jameson is an illustrator based in Bournemouth and Oxford, who works primarily with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to create wonderfully textured images.
We absolutely love the details in Lorna's work, and how her illustrations tell a story.
 
Lorna's work has a paper-cut out quality to it, which is very visually appealing. Lorna also has a keen eye for detail, there's always something for your eye to pick up on!
So what did Lorna create for us?
Lorna designed an amazing A3 print! We are in love with the little ghosties on the washing lines. We also love her use of colour and the amount of detail.
Each Glicee print is printed on 300gsm fine art paper <3

 1. What's your favourite fictitious Ghost from popular media?

I absolutely love children’s computer games, so my favourite ghost must be Boo from Luigi’s Mansion.

2. What's the best item in your pencil case?

My mechanical pencil is the best item I own. No matter where I am, I am always carrying it- you never know when or where you are when an idea pops into your head and you need to scribble it down.

3. Paint? Pencil? or Tablet?

The artwork I create is always done on my tablet, however my pencil is where it all starts. My sketchbook is full of tiny rough drawings which I develop further on my tablet.

4. What's your go-to motivational album?

My motivational album really depends on my mood, but I always find myself listening to singer songwriter Mahalia.

5. How would you describe your work? Are there any common themes?

I have always been intrigued by miniature worlds. I love creating illustrations which feel quaint and idyllic, and make the viewer feel like an onlooker into a tiny world. This, along with bright colours and textures seem to be a theme throughout my illustrations.

6. What's your proudest piece that you've worked on?

Over the past year I have written and illustrated a book of poems. Forgotten Worlds is packed with poems which explore tiny nonsense worlds. This was a big self-initiated project and having spent many long nights on it, it must be my proudest piece.

7. Do you have any/many artist rituals?

Whenever I run out of ideas, I start drawing plants. This is my go-to way for beating ‘artists block’. I never have to think about what they might look like, its just the first thing that comes to my mind.

8. What motivates you?

Getting out and about and finding new and exciting places to draw. Botanical gardens have always been my favourite place to visit and draw- they are jam-packed with nature, at its best.

9. What do you do, that you think no one else does whilst working?

I like to move my desk around or physically move where I am sat. If I am too familiar with where I am working, I find it hard to come up with new ideas.

10. Who are you inspired by?

My inspiration comes from a huge variety of places. I use my Instagram to keep up to date with illustrators and designers such as Amber Davenport and Owen Davey (my current favourites). My artwork is heavily inspired by the environment around me, and reflects my influences from the architecture and nature I am surrounded in- nothing beats a holiday sketchbook!

11. What's your favourite way to practice self care? (Especially after a busy week)

If i have had a really busy week, my studio is often a mess! I love just having a tidy up and preparing my desk for another day of work. I have always found a tidy space makes a tidy mind and so my go-to would be putting on some upbeat music and organising my workspace.
